More On: Panzer Dragoon Orta Star Wars Pinball Thimbleweed Park Tennis World Tour 2 Amazon Luna

I haven't checking in on Luna lately, so I fired it up today to see if any new games have been added. And the answer is, yup, there are four new titles on Luna that I haven't seen before.

For those not familiar, Luna is a subscription-based gaming platform now in beta on Amazon. For $5.99, you gain access to a growing library of games. For additional fees, you can add "channels", bringing more games into the library (the first, Ubisoft+, is now available).

So what's new today? Well, here's a breakdown, along with a little bit of marketing text and some trailers:

Panzer Dragoon - "A new, remade version of the Panzer Dragoon game – true to the original, with improved graphics and controls, that suit modern gaming standards! On a far, lone planet, you encounter two dragons awaken from the ancient times. Armed with a deadly gun from the past, and the guidance of your armored blue dragon, you must fulfill your destiny and keep the Prototype Dragon from reaching the Tower or die trying."

Star Wars Pinball (check out my review of the Switch version here) - Feel the power of the Force™ in Star Wars Pinball! 19 TABLES CELEBRATING A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY

  • Movie Adaptations: Episodes IV - VIII; Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • TV Adaptations: Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels
  • Characters: Han Solo, Darth Vader, Lando Calrissian in the Calrissian Chronicles table, Boba Fett, Droids
  • Locations: Ahch-To Island, Mimban
  • Themes: Jedi versus Sith in Masters of the Force, X-wings vs. TIE fighters in Starfighter Assault, or experience the Might of the First Order

Tennis World Tour 2 - "Play as the world's top players or create your own player to try and dominate the world rankings. Faster paced, with more animations and more realism: experience the true sensations of tennis, in singles or doubles games, and challenge your friends locally."

Thimbleweed Park (read Randy's review here) - "A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes... you’ve never visited a place like this before. Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. They don’t know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they’re being watched. In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems."

I'll probably give a few of these games a shot this week and post some videos. I'm curious to try Tennis World Tour 2. I know nothing about tennis, not even the basic rules. It ought to be pretty funny to try out a video game version.

Keep an eye on Gaming Nexus for Luna news as it becomes available.
